can EFI partition initialized in EFI Shell?

Guys,
rx6600 with HP-UX 11.23, vg00 created using /dev/dsk/c1t0d0s2, and someone used c1t0d0s1 to create vg02(don't know how to discribe this action),so the rx6600 could not boot after shutdown -ry.
So can I re-create the EFI partition to make this rx6600 bootable or reinstall the box was my only option?

regards
Stephen

You can try to boot the server from recovery media and recover the failed partition.

From the "HP-UX Recovery MENU", choose the below option,
b. recover the bootlif/os partitions
